Sevilla close in on Mariano?

Sevilla are reportedly closing in on the signing of Bordeaux right-back Mariano for a fee in the region of €4m.

Marca claims the Andalucians have turned to the 29-year-old after conceding defeat in their bid to land Mauricio Isla and are set to announce the transfer on Friday, providing the outstanding details are finalised in time.

Mariano, full name Mariano Ferreira Filho, has spent most of his career in his native Brazil but joined Bordeaux in January 2012 and has made over 100 appearances for the Ligue 1 side, although he has never been capped by the Selecao.
